Forum: texts Subject: The scan is already double-page - how to fix preview

Hi,

So apparently the auto-generated preview assumes that one page of the pdf corresponds to one page of the book. But my document is a scan of a smaller format book so one page of the pdf is two pages of the book. So the preview shows 4 pages at once, which is not that big of a deal, but i'd like to know if there is a way to fix it.

Basically is there a way to make the preview "cut" each pdf page in the middle and treat each half as one book page.
